Fair call would be to allow all UK electorate to have a vote.

 


Responsibility Deficit Disorder is a medical condition. Symptoms include inability to be corrected when wrong, false sense of superiority, desire to share personal info no else cares about, general hubris. It's a medical issue rather than pure arrogance.

I think the last thing the SNP want right now is a referendum especially with the economy on the downward slide.

I think Wee Jimmy and her mates prefer playing the victim and blackmailing the rest of out of even more money.

The court will rule against the SNP so stand by for wailing and gnashing of teeth and renting of clothes.

I vote to kick them out!
They get more public money to spend per head than England and Wales so first off let's cut that funding down and see how Wee Krankie likes that!
She will be so angry - can't wait for the interviews as she continues to waste public funds chasing her own personal dream!

There was an SNP MP slating Sturgeon on BBC politics today.

Not for the reasons you might think though (the obvious ones). No for this guy, there has to be direct action by all Scottish people. He basically called for massive civil unrest until they get their own way. Sturgeon is a suck up - according to him. I didn't get his name as I couldn't believe the sh1t he was coming out with.
I was waiting for his call to retake Berwick and forge an alliance with the French King.
His historical take on the Union being up to the Scottish people was also great comedy. His history must come from the Celtic programme.

They should less time on identity politics rubbish and actually do something for the people suffering from their mis management...education and medical services provision

Sturgeon is bumping her gums saying she'll turn the next General Election into a de facto referendum.

I'm not sure how that will work, because although the SNP might win the majority of Scottish seats, their share of the votes in Scotland might not exceed 50%.

In 2015, the SNP won 50% of the vote.

In 2017, even though the SNP were still the dominant party in Scotland, their share of the vote decreased to 36.9%

In 2019, the SNP won 45& of the vote share.

If the SNP win over 50% of the vote share in the next General Election they might then have a case for Independence.

However, if the SNP win a majority of seats in Scotland, but receive less that 50% of the vote share, will Sturgeon finally zip it? I very seriously doubt it!

The Scots were put at even more of an economic disadvantage when Boris sold-off fishing rights in UK waters to the EU. That was the UK's ace-card, and particularly so for Scottish fisherman. And Boris sold it for a bar of Belgium chocolate and bottle of Champagne.
Even with those fishing rights restored, the Scots would still struggle. Also take away the RAF bases and Royal Navy bases and the Scots wouds have to resort to hunting for haggis again.

Don't forget the thousands of UK civil service jobs. Once they are independent I would expect a UK government to move those jobs back to England / Wales / NI.
